Newberry Ghosts Still Haunting After 150 Years

Full story: WLTX Columbia

With South Carolina’s long chapter in the American history books, it’s no surprise that the Midlands are haunted.

Hi I am from Calhoun County High and I am writing to tell about ghost. They are nothing to be scared of at all. This is what my grandma always tell me but I am still scared of them to even at the age sixteen. I am scared of lots of things but sometimes people get carried away with ghost and imaginary things.

I graduated from Newberry College in 1999, and Madeline moves around the campus a bit. There was always at least one person a year who'd swear they'd see her in a window in the old building next to Kinard Hall before they fixed it up.

Newberry is just desperate for visitors... so they do this to entice more.

The real reason Madeline jumped was the shame of falling for a Yamkee soldier.

The dead know not of the living(Ecc-9:5-10,Ecc-12:9,Job -14:21).They await the resurrection on the return of our Lord(Jn5:28-29).If U see ghost,,it is only demonic spirits deceiving the Gullible who do not know the truthe(Ephesians-6:12).

Madeline is not the only ghost on campus! They actually should do an entire report on them. Our campus is so old, and is full of rich heritage and I can assure you that Madeline is NOT alone.

I don't give a darn if you all think I'm crazy, but my wife and I together witnessed some sort of phenomenon. There was a plate in our room, sitting on the table, perfectly flat and still. Suddenly the air just felt different, I don't know how to describe it. Then the plate moved a good 7-8 inches across a flat surface, slowly, like someone was pushing it. We were frozen watching it, and it shattered on the floor. I believe in spirits, and I believe SC in particular is chock full of them, however, I believe they are nothing to fear as they are in another world and cannot hurt us.
I cannot explain the plate incident (which has repeated itself 2 times since over the years). I felt like someone else was in the room with us. It was wild.
Happy hour

Maybe they could use these old stories to come up with a new mascot...
--Newberry Ghosts?
--Newberry Spirits?
--Newberry Apparitions?
--Newberry Wraiths?

...just doesn't have the same ring as Newberry Indians!
